VariousDave Hamilton's Detroit Soul ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $9.99
Rare Detroit soul from the archives of Dave Hamilton – the vast majority from the fertile late 60s period, plus a couple of later cuts – soulful Hamilton productions and featuring wonderful numbers by Bobby Dee, Priscilla Page, The Moderations, Frenchy & The Chessmen, Harry Reid, Charmaine, Sue Ann Jones, Emanuel Taylor, Billy Soul and more! Hamilton may not be one of the best known names in the soul music canon, but his imprint is massive – both as a producer and performer. This great Ace comp of rare singles is a fine document and it's filled with excellent tracks. A treasure trove! 25 tracks in all: "Take Care Of Your Own Business" by Dave Hamilton, "Sweet Thing Part 1" by Bobby Dee, "I'm Pretending" by Priscilla Page, "I'm Begging You" by Chicago Pete, "All Because Of You" by The Moderations, "You Gotta Show Me" by Billy Soul, "Won't You Come On Home by Harry Reid, "Don't You Listen" by Charmain, "Missing You" by Sue Ann Jones and more.

✨✧ VariousMainstream Modern Soul – 1969 to 1976 ... CD
Kent/Mainstream (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $10.99
A huge array of soul tracks from the Mainstream label – an imprint that was probably best known for its jazz work of the early 70s, and as the launching pad for a few key rock groups – but one who also cut some killer soul tracks in the best New York and Philly styles of the period! Mainstream only ever issued most of its soul material as singles – 45s issued on their own label, and under the IX Chains, Brown Dog, and New Moon imprints too – spread out in an array of under-circulated, poorly-distributed releases that never fully got their due at the time – partly because much of the music was years ahead of its time! There's a groove here that reminds us of the hippest sounds from bigger labels – including Philly International or All-Platinum – with a similar blend of sweetness, honest vocal performances, and some top-shelf studio work that gives the lyrics a hell of an instrumental push, but all without ever sounding slick or commercial. The package is a much-needed look at this scattered legacy – and brings together 24 rare cuts that include "These Memories" by Almeta Lattimore, "I'm The One Who Loves You" by JG Lewis, "Come Back (part 1)" by The Fantastic Puzzles, "I Can't Give You Up" by Linda Perry, "It Ain't Like It Used To Be" by Randolph Brown & Company, "No Rebate On Love" by The Dramatics, "You're A Friend Of Mine" by Words Of Wisdom, "Satisfy My Woman" by Calvin Arnold, "Plain Out Of Luck" by Nia Johnson, "We're Not Too Young To Fall In Love" by Jackey Beavers Show, "Let The People Talk" by The Steptones, "To Whom It May Concern" by Ellerine Harding, "It's So Real" by McArthur, "Stop & Think A Minute" by Charles Beverly, and "That's The Way She Is" by Bobby Earl Williams.

✨✧ VariousI Got Soul – Blacksploitation Mood ... CD
Playoff (France), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Classic funky soul from the 70s – a set that definitely lives up to the blacksploitation groove promised in the title, thanks to a host of classics from the left field of the funky spectrum! Some of these cuts are well-remembered from back in the day, but most are the kind of underground tracks that have grown in strength over the years – thanks to circulation as hip hop samples, or on rare groove playlists – and in fact, the whole track list here might well read as kind of a dream list to hear on a funky dancefloor! Titles include "I Believe In Miracles" by The Jackson Sisters, "Give Me Your Love" by Sisters Love, "Across 110th Street" by Bobby Womack, "Testify" by Johnnie Taylor, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin" by James Brown, "Love Me Back" by Willie Hutch, "I Cry" by Millie Jackson, "Hang Out & Hustle" by Sweet Charles, "Brother Louie" by Undisputed Truth, "Superfly" by Curtis Mayfield, and "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source.
